what we do


Raise the Roof Academy students are living proof that education opens doors out of poverty, child labor, disease, and chaos. Our students come from families who often live on less than $1 a day. We provide a free, high-quality education to girls and boys born in the most remote communities of Uganda who, due to poverty and social pressures, would otherwise be cut off from the promise of education. 



We are building an educational system that includes a K-12 school and skills training center.


We are building a health clinic so no child will be held back from learning due to illness.


For prolonged success, we focus on providing local leaders the tools necessary to continue the mission.
